Superstar DJ Diplo received his Nightclub & Bar 2014 Resident DJ of the Year award on Wednesday night at Surrender Nightclub’s wildly popular “Surrender Your Wednesday” weekly industry party. Diplo won the award for his Encore Las Vegas residency at Surrender and XS Nightclubs.

Due to a flight delay, Diplo missed collecting his statue at the awards ceremony held earlier in the day at the Nashville Convention Center, but he did make it to the Nightclub & Bar Convention & Trade Show in time to hang out in the Surrender Nightclub and Encore Beach Club booth, where he got behind the decks and did what he does best.  iplo pal and fellow Wynn Las Vegas resident deejay Lil Jon was also on hand.

A celebration ensued later in the evening at Surrender Nightclub, where Diplo finally got his award in hand, presented by Jonathan Shecter, Wynn Las Vegas’ director of original programming.  “Diplo & Friends,” including Paper Diamond and Flosstradamus, entertained the capacity crowd and Lil Jon ramped up the already electrified party by hopping atop the DJ booth.
